Roasted Asparagus

There are few things on earth that I like more than Asparagus.  During the summer there is always Asparagus in my fridge either cooked or ready to be cooked. 

I recently roasted some in my oven and have decided I may never eat it any other way.

It was simple and delicious!  Not kidding!

Ingredients:  1 lb fresh Asparagus; 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil;  Fresh ground pepper and sea salt to taste. 

Take a pound of fresh Asparagus.  Snap off the bottoms at the natural breaking point. Clean and pat dry. 

Place on a cookie sheet all lined up pretty. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.  Roll back and forth until evenly coated.  Sprinkle with sea salt and fresh pepper. 

Roast in the oven on 325° until your smoke alarms go off for approximately 15 to 20 minutes (depending on the oven and the sensitivity of said smoke alarms how crunchy you want it ). 

You can also grill on the BBQ but I find that to be a pain without one of those fish basket things that I no longer possess because my dog apparently thought it was the next cool thing in chew toys.  But I'm not bitter.
